Probable error in honda and haynes manual
« on: March 11, 2021, 05:55:38 am »
I think I have found an error in both the Honda service manual as in the Honda FT500 Haynes Manual.
The error is in Haynes chapter 8 page 7 regarding the service limits of the clutch guide.

The mentioned limit for the outer length is mentioned as 33.10 mm.
Mine was a bit over 30mm and did not show any signs of wear. I've checked with multiple wreckers but all responses were that also on their guides the length was 30 something instead of 33.10.

Be mindful of this when you are checking your engine, don't go buying expensive parts when it is not necessary.
